    All I can remember from my previous visit (besides the massive shhhhteaks) is the spinach.
    only went once a long time ago, and the sizzling mussels starter was delicious also. i remember Darren Clarke sitting at the table behind us

        My son who works in building technology had an interesting take on how to solve the problem at the least cost.
        Set up a state backed not for profit company to build and operate a factory in the Northwest to churn out prefabricated buildings to a minimal number of patterns 2, 3 and 4 beds and you could drive down costs on well designed high spec A rated buildings to less than half the commercial self builds would be. With Modern tech there would be lots of configuration options so its not anything like 'you can have any colour you like as long as it's black'. Site costs will vary obviously but it sounds like an interesting way of keeping the bill for the taxpayer down.
        How about making the quarry owner who sold unsuitable materials replace them, if they go under because of it than keep the quarries, all the staff on payroll and machinery running.

        it would be a fairly big saving I would imagine even if I’m not usually in favour of nationalisation. Not hearing nearly as much about who is actually to blame as I would expect.

          He's a conservative MP, so he is going to have pretty conservative opinions! Many polls in the UK often show support for capital punishment at close to 50% - it's not a particularly out-there opinion. Also, your fav authoritarian regime regularly executes people so I don't understand why you aren't championing this opinion.

            I dunno, if I hang it off one of my ears I feel like I'm in Top Gun.

The big unsaid is this Ballymun Garda chief who blew his brains out. Basically how Patrick got off. So if its a shitty weak State case against the Monk we know the system is burying the case to protect themselves.

              This case is going to be like a GAA back door rig a ma jig applied science thing. A tumble dryer of new precedent. Gerry is a survivor, I wouldnt back against him.
              Nice twist at the end of the water boarding story.

                I wasn't sure we'd ever get it over the line
                From the last time I was there, the spinach really is sublime. I always think of it any time I have it anywhere else, because no where else gets close.

                  Yeah, he seemed to be the absolute epitome of a fairly useless nonentity of a backbench MP in an ultra-safe seat - 38 years without ever being consider worthy of even a junior ministry in government or opposition is pretty good going.
                  It was fun to see the way the tributes from all parties seem to stick with the safe territory of 'he cared for animals', 'was a very personable guy' and 'he loved being an MP' (code for 'been an MP since he was 30yo and a councillor for a half a decade before that so clearly qualified for nothing else')

                    Would be quite the twist if we sit there and say 'we'll just have the spinach thanks'.

                      I find the uk panel show regulars like Jon Richardson, Bob Mortimer, Kevin Bridges, David Mitchell, Miles Jupp, Sean Lock, Rhod Gilbert, Jimmy Carr, Steven Mangan and a couple of dozen others to be superb.
                      Maybe the very top tier of the USA are ahead, but the UK has huge strength in depth.

                              Any recommendations for somewhere for lunch around the Grafton St area? Somewhere a lot less fancy than Shanahans.

                                            I personally feel those three views combine to suggest a classically awful politician. Not notably awful, just lowkey awful. The type of lowkey regional awful that combines to elect thatchers and johnsons and make the tories what they are.

                                            Not that that in anyway should deflect from the personal tragedy for his poor wife and children.

                                                  'Lowkey regional awful' probably describes most Irish politicians tbf.

                                                      You didn’t call him an awful politician originally though. There’s loads of them around. An awful person/man though is different, no?

                                                      Not trying to stick up for him cause he’s dead. He may well be an awful person. Your 3 points don’t make him so though

                                                                    I find the uk panel show regulars like Jon Richardson, Bob Mortimer, Kevin Bridges, David Mitchell, Miles Jupp, Sean Lock, Rhod Gilbert, Jimmy Carr, Steven Mangan and a couple of dozen others to be superb.
                                                                    Maybe the very top tier of the USA are ahead, but the UK has huge strength in depth.
                                                                    I giggle but havent laughed hard in years at any UK comedian. The panel shows are just lads cracking average one liners . I'm sitting there pulling for a decent laugh it's like pulling teeth with some of them. I was in a comedy club in NY a few years ago. Maybe old age. Never heard of any of them. I was wiping my eyes and my jaw hurt. An episode of Star Trek the lower decks last week got me funny show .

                                                                    Btw before ye slag my corny efforts. I'm not on the telly box

The panel shows are just lads cracking average one liners . I'm sitting there pulling for a decent laugh it's like pulling teeth with some of them. I was in a comedy club in NY a few years ago. Maybe old age. Never heard of any of them. I was wiping my eyes and my jaw hurt. An episode of Star Trek the lower decks last week got me funny show

Just like music, live comedy is something special. It can be terrible obviously. But when it’s on point, theres no way TV can match it. It’s an experience. Gasping for air, about to her sick. Just doesn’t happen at home.
